Chop is basically a droplet that lets you manage file/folder ownership and permissions.

Chop lets you recursively modify the permissions of a folder and its entire content, treating the enclosed files and folders INDEPENDENTLY. This means, for example, that with ONE simple drag & drop operation, you could set all the files (enclosed in the folder you drag & drop onto Chop) to be rw-rw-r-- (664) and all the subfolders to be rwxrwxr-x (775). In fact it is often requested to give executable privileges to folders and not to files.

the fact that I can specify whether I want to change EITHER files OR folders recursively (and I'm not forced to apply the same privileges to both) it's exactly what I was looking for . Amazing ! Thanks!

In fact it is often requested to give executable privileges to folders and not to files.

Chop lets you change ownership and permissions of a single file or folder (without modifying the enclosed files). This feature can also be useful as a sort of "Info panel" that shows you at a glance all the attributes (ownership and permissions flags) of the desired file or folder.

Chop lets you delete all the invisible ".DS_Store" files enclosed in a particular folder, with a single drang & drop operation.
